Specific applications of magnesium hydroxide in medicine

Hebei Messi Biology Co., Ltd. said that everyone should be familiar with magnesium hydroxide. It is a commonly used magnesium salt compound in our laboratory. Magnesium hydroxide can be obtained by reacting magnesium oxide with water. It is a white, non-toxic compound. A type of powdery substance that is shaped and difficult to dissolve in water. It is more easily soluble in dilute acids and ammonium salt solutions. Magnesium hydroxide is an alkaline substance and can be used as an analytical reagent and in pharmaceutical engineering. Mainly Its functions are antacid, anti-hypermagnesemia, anti-arrhythmia, neutralizing gastric acid, choleretic, protecting gastric mucosa, etc.

Magnesium Hydroxide-Pharma Grade

1, Anti-acid: Magnesium hydroxide is an alkaline substance that is often used clinically to relieve uncomfortable symptoms caused by excessive gastric acid, such as acid reflux, belching, abdominal pain, etc. Its mechanism of action is to inhibit gastric acid secretion by reacting with gastric acid to form insoluble salt precipitates.

2, Neutralize gastric acid: When gastric acid is secreted too much, it will cause symptoms such as burning sensation and pain in the stomach. Magnesium hydroxide can neutralize gastric acid and increase the pH value in the stomach, thereby reducing the irritation of gastric acid on the gastric mucosa and exerting a certain analgesic effect.

Protect the gastric mucosa

3, Protect the gastric mucosa: If you drink a lot of alcohol or eat spicy food for a long time, it may cause damage to the gastric mucosa, causing gastric ulcers, duodenal ulcers and other diseases. At this time, magnesium hydroxide protects the gastric mucosa and promotes the repair of damaged tissue. Magnesium hydroxide also promotes digestion and can treat constipation.
